Looks like all those "Dougie and Ellie are Engaged!" claims had no basis. Well, not now anyway. The couple, who have been together for two years, have split up as Ellie announces that she wishes to "get to know" herself. 

Speaking with The Sun, the singer reportedly said: "‘People think I’m invincible but these past few weeks have been tough. I’m not in a relationship any more and that’s been hard. Having a break will be a good thing for me and my head."

In an interview last year with You Magazine, the 29-year-old was in a very different place: "We want to [get married] and we do want to have children but I think realistically it won’t happen for a while. Next year I’m on tour and I don’t want it to be something we fit in."

In addition to that massive life change, Ellie has also announced that she's taking a break from her career: "I’m not writing new stuff. I’m not sure when I’ll release a new album. It might not even be next year. I need time off for my own head... Next year I need to live a bit. Who knows? My situation has changed."

According to Metro.co.uk, Dougie is currently in LA pursuing a career in acting. Every cloud.
